    Newbie Looking Dedicated Server to Handle Website with 16000 UV/day

    Dear all

    I'm new in this thing.
    My current website now have 16k unique visitor/day.
    Last time I was host my website in HostGator shared plan, and it can't handle any more.
    Maybe for the first time, I won't looking for superb server, but will be try small specification.
    Slow but sure, I will upgrade it based on my website's growth.

    Please give me advice about price, specs that can handle my website, and the provider.


    Thank you very much

    We need some more info from you before giving out recommendations. What kind of website are you running? Is there a forum or other dynamic scripts? What kind of budget are you trying to work within?

    it just simple blog about job listing in my country.
    i think i put $100 (or below) for this.

    Could server with 256 RAM handle this kind of traffic?
    I don't need too much space.
    The important is bandwith and RAM.

    Thx

    Even with a simple blog, I would go with at least 512MB RAM, and would recommend 1GB+, but that budget is hard to work with. Are you running WordPress? If you properly optimize your blog script, you might be able to get away with only 512. Also are you going to need your server managed?

    Overhead of most operating systems is going to require at least 512Mb. You might look at the dual core processors out there just in case your site starts to grow you wont need to be upgrading as soon , but that will mean upgrading your budget a bit.

    Just FYI, "Newbie" and "Dedicated Server" usually doesn't go together unless you rent one that is fully managed one way or another.
